Regional Infrastructure Plans will be developed for three regions in South Australia:
- Yorke and Mid-North/Braemar Region;
- Far North Region; and
- Eyre and Western Region.
The planning deliverables include:
- Developing three detailed, regionally specific infrastructure plans, which focus on supporting the mining sector and realising benefits for regional communities. The plans build on the Resources and Energy Infrastructure Demand Study developed by the Resources and Energy Sector Infrastructure Council;
- Identifying, refining and assessing supply chain options to meet a range of demand scenarios, including rationalising and optimising existing and planned infrastructure;
- Identifying potential locations of strategic infrastructure corridors and hubs, and implications and opportunities for local communities, including land use considerations; and
- Providing the necessary detail to guide investment and government policy effort to achieve economic, social and environmental objectives.
The benefits include developing detailed, regionally specific infrastructure plans which focus on supporting the mining sector and generating flow-on benefits for regional communities. The plans include identifying current and potential mining projects, potential locations of strategic infrastructure corridors and hubs, and implications and opportunities for local communities.
The Australian Government contributed $1.5 million towards the $2.12 million total project cost.
This plan was completed in June 2014.
